Thanks to DBR, I have also tasted Terrapin’s Big Hoppy Monster and Rye Pale Ale, and I have a Terrapin Wake ‘n’ Bake Coffee Oatmeal Stout chillin’ in the fridge. I might have it for breakfast tomorrow.
7.2% ABV/78 IBUs; this IPA kills six different kinds of hops, which (DUH) is what earns it the title of Hopsecutioner. It also killed my mouth a little bit. It had kind of a sharp, alcohol burn at first, but after getting some air, it smoothed out a bit. I liked it, but I wasn’t drooling all over it. I’d go for the Rye Pale or Hoppy Monster over this one.
So, for those of you who are keeping score, that’s:
- Three Terrapin beers, one more to go
- Beer #3 of beer trade #2
- Five consecutive days without running
- And, I’d tell you how many days of consecutive beer-drinking, but I lost count six months ago.
Also, it’s COLD.
